Assistant Bar Manager, St. JOHN Smithfield

Since the original St JOHN restaurant opened in Smithfield in 1994, the now famous Fergus Henderson and Trevor Gulliver (Founding Directors) have grown their unique and eclectic group of restaurants to six operations: two restaurants, a wholesale bakery, a retail bakery, a winery and a wine company. Each enterprise is unique, but they all adhere to the distinct style and philosophy which gathers all branches of the business under the St. JOHN umbrella, and makes them so instantly recognisable. Each is at the beating heart of the vibrant community in which it was established.
